Good Arm Action Your Starting Position balances your weight just in front of your Back Foot. As you go into your ..read more

A proper Glove Hand plays a huge role balancing your Foot Strike and getting the ball to your target.An Out-of-Place Glove Hand In your Starting Position, when your Front Knee goes behind your Front Hip, your Glove Hand is used only for balance and is clearly an obstacle to your location. Without Glove Hand involvement, you land your Stride, and your Throwing Arm alone delivers your pitch. Your Throwing Arm working alone pulls the ball to your target and, unless you have a feel for the target, causes you to lose your location. Properly Placed Glove Hands However, in your Starting Position, w ..read more

 You only control your actions when your Body is in balance.Poor Balance When your Front Foot goes to the Home Plate side of your Front Knee, your weight balances over your Back Foot.

Your Throwing Hand works alone to release the ball and misses your target more often than throwing the ball directly to your target. The Balance You Need When your Front Knee fin ..read more

  Foot Placement The right Foot Position promotes your motion’s “balance” and gets your ball to travel directly into your target. Common Foot Placement When you place your Feet more than one baseball width apart, you start an adverse sequence of events. Your Front Foot naturally goes behind your Front Knee and you “balance” your weight over your Back Foot. With your weight over your Back Foot, your Body uses your Throwing Arm to offset your Stride, your Foot Plants, and you begin your Throwing action. Your ball rarely goes into your intended target. Good Foot Placement Your ideal Front F ..read more
